Surrey CCC is teaming up with international charity partner Cricket Builds Hope to host a carol service near the Kia Oval next Thursday (December 5th).
The service will take place at St. Mark’s Church, opposite Oval Tube Station, starting at 6.30pm. There will be readings by Rwandan High Commissioner Yamina Karitanyi, Surrey fast bowler Stuart Meaker, International Development Minister Baroness Liz Sugg and the Club’s Chief Executive, Richard Gould. Celebrations will be led by Rev Steve Coulson, Vicar of St. Mark’s and Chaplain to Surrey CCC.
There will also be a performance from Faire is the XI, the nation’s only cricketing choir. After the service, there will be mince pies and mulled wine in the back of the church.
Cricket Builds Hope, who successfully built the first cricket ground in Rwanda and now run cricketing programmes across the country, have been the Club’s international charity partner for a number of years.
Tickets for the service cost £25, with all proceeds going straight to Cricket Builds Hope, but Surrey fans and their guests can benefit from a 20% discount by entering the code SURREYCCC when purchasing.
